National Broadband Plan
The National Broadband Plan (NBP) aims to conclusively address Ireland’s connectivity challenges, by ensuring that every premises in the country has access to high speed services.
This is being achieved through:
- Measures to incentivise and accelerate industry investment; and
- An ambitious investment programme by the State, in areas where industry won’t invest.
A detailed procurement process is being undertaken in order to select a potential bidder or bidders. This process is currently in train and it is hoped that a contract or contracts will be signed in early summer 2017.
